                Spirit-Rising
 "Hand to Hand and Heart to Heart"



Spirit Rising is operated from my home on the Mattaponi Indian Reservation located in the beautiful Tidewater area of Virginia. Our Reservation is one of the oldest reservations in our country, near Richmond and Williamsburg. For the past 19 years we have been helping our Native People and families in Virginia, South Dakota, Arizona and Nebraska. After becoming aware of the basic needs of our People, we were confronted with the fact that we could not do it all.

We set up our organization with guidance from the Creator
and help from many good-hearted people. As a result of our combined efforts we are able to help with food, clothing, furniture, counseling, dentistry, eyeglasses, utilities, and advocacy for our families suffering from domestic violence. We have also been blessed enough to have been provided with four automobiles (medical needs), and were able to replace two decrepit mobile homes.
